Vanessa’s blog launched with passion and she’s built a beautiful community with her own flavour of style, home, family and travel.
Today I’m thrilled to welcome her to our blog….
Vanessa, what’s your blog about?
My blog, Style and Shenanigans is about finding every day style in the chaos and joys of family life. Style that is fun, affordable, fabulous and family friendly.
What’s your big dream/goal for your blog?
I would love to build it up to the point where I can earn a very part time income from it. I was made redundant from my workplace last November and I’d love to be able to replace that income. I’d love to grow it so that when my youngest eventually starts school, I can continue to work from home and have the flexibility to be around for the kids as much as possible.
What have been your biggest blogging challenges so far?
Maintaining the discipline of writing and publishing three times a week for 18 months. Sometimes I barely get my post written let alone have the time to promote it properly on social media. I’d also love more time to read other blogs and so I can be a bit more strategic with my blogging including reading my stats occasionally!
Is there anything that you’re super proud of?
I’ve done a few sponsored posts now which has been great. I’ve also built a great community of readers and have received some really lovely, encouraging emails. Being asked by a couple of other bloggers to mentor them has been really humbling too.
